College 1Rewe. WELLESLEY, MASS., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1907. Vol. T. No. r. Price, 5 Cents. Quarter = Centennial Meeting of Collegiate Alumnae. A brief account of the Quarter-Cen- tennial meeting of the Association of Col- legiate Alunmae, and especially of the afternoon spent at Wellesley, may be of interest to Wellesley students and Alum- nae. This is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Association, and as it was founded in Boston and incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts, the annual meeting of the Association was held in Boston, November 5th to 9th, by invitation of the Boston Branch. Every effort was made to make the occasion a memorable one in the history of the Association, and the program included speeches of prominence and distinction from different sections of the country. The meetings open to the public were held on Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening and Friday evening. President Hazard made an address of welcome at the opening meeting on Tues- day evening, held at the Boston Public Library. On Monday evening, November 4, the New England Women's Club received the resident and visiting members of the As- sociation at the Grundmann Studios, Clarendon street. On Tuesday afternoon, the Association and its guests were enter- tained by the College Club of Boston at the Club House, from four to six o'clock. Wednesday morning, there were excur- sions to places of historical interest around Boston and Concord, and visits to the In- stitute of Technology, Boston University, Simmons College, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Boston Public Library. Thursday afternoon the Boston Branch entertained the members in Cambridge. A special car started from the Public Li- brary, going directly to the Craigie House, where the members were received by in- vitation of Miss Alice M. Longfellow. A visit was then made to the Harvard Col- lege Library, and to the Harvard Observa- tory, where women have special opportu- nities for advanced work. By invitation of the authorities of Radcliffe College, the members visited the halls of residence, Bertram Hall and Grace Hopkinson Eliot Hall, from 4.30 to 5.30, and met at Agas- siz House for supper at 6 o'clock. On Friday afternoon the Association visited Wellesley College. The delega- tion was met at the station, and conducted through the college grounds in barges. All of the houses on the campus were open, and special stops were made at the Whitin Observatory, the Houghton Memorial Chapel, Billings Hall and the Art Build- ing. They reached College Hall about four o'clock, and were received in the Brown- ing room by President Hazard, Mrs. Durant and Miss Pendieton. Refresh- ments were served in Center and in the Faculty Parlor. Late in the afternoon a special train carried the delegation back to Boston. On Friday evening, after the session at the Hotel Somerset, a reception was given by the Boston Branch to the visiting mem- bers and guests, and on Saturday, at i P.M., the Boston Branch entertained the visitors at a luncheon served at the Hotel Somerset. Christian Association Meeting. At the meeting of the Christian Asso- ciation, Thursday, November 7, several of the people who went to Silver Bay gave different phases of the message of the conference. The first to speak, after Miss Shonk, the leader, was Miss Love. She brought out very clearly that the spirit of Silver Bay is a reality, characterized by cheerfulness, unselfishness, sincerity and willingness to help others, as well as by the good-fr arising from, the common interest and purpose. Then Miss Steven- son spoke of the out-door life, of the many opportunities for boating or walking, of the different sports, such as we have here, and finally of College Day, when all the girls come together socially, and show by songs and costumes which is their Alma Mater. Miss McCarroll next told us something about missions, and Miss Cushman reminded us that the difficulties which we meet at Silver Bay or anywhere are going to make us stronger, better women. Another of the benefits of the Conference was brought out by Miss An- na Brown, when she spoke of the inspira- tion and help it brings to a girl to see, know and talk to the leaders at Silver Bay and the girls from other delegations. Then Miss Burns told us of the meetings there, and the attitude of the girls toward these; how that each girl went, not from a sense of duty, but because she wished to hear the special message which each meeting was sure to bring. The next speaker was Miss Wallower, who gave the message which Bible study brought to her. The last message of the evening was given by Miss Pfeiffer in answer to questions which might arise in the girls' minds as to the possibility of so large a delegation's being united in purpose. The key to the solu- tion is prayer. It was in all and through all, in play as well as work, in the contests, in the committee meetings, in the Bible classes, and in the platform meetings. The Conference brings out very forcibly the joy of loving service, and we hope that those who have not had the privilege of being there, will feel that no life is so truly happy as that which is consecrated to the service of Jesus Christ. THE HARVEST DANCE. Although we all know that Wellesley is a place where "no matter what you wear, you'll always find someone else wearing the same thing," we must admit that some fashions held striking sway at the Barn Saturday night. Overalls were the even- ing dress for gentlemen, not quite correct unless broad straw hats were added. Some of the ultrafashionable smoked corn- cob pipes, and the more gallant carried hoes. Coquettish, blushing ladies acted quite unconscious of their two-button kid gloves, graceful veils and elegant bows, and chatted kindly with ladies in gingham aprons. Black mammies and their "ole men" romped gleefully through the as- sembly of fashion; pert boys flirted with shy little girls; and those who were hope- lessly out of fashion made note of the others' gay costumes. A hurdy gurdy played for the dancers to bump and romp through the hall. Overhead apples and doughnuts hung within reach of the ladies' hands and gen- tlemen's mouths, — little girls could run to the platform and tables to find big heaps of them. Distinguished guests watched the dancing; Tweedledum and Tweedle- dee, always ready to quarrel, and Sis Hopkins in blithe humor. Is it any won- der that the farmer lads and lassies had a jolly time? THE CONSUMERS' LEAGUE. The Consumers' League wishes to state in answer to the many questions that have been asked, that the reason we did not have a table on Pay Day is not owing to our being in a dead, dying, or comatose state, but because we decided not to have the annual canvass for new members until January this year. Our main object is not to have a large membership who have joined and paid their quarters just to get rid of the canvasser. We want every girl in college to belong to the league because she realizes so clearly what it stands for that she can't stay out of it. We don't ask for you to decide now; but we do ask every Wellesley girl who means anything when she says, " Non ministrari, sed min- istrare," to look with seeing eyes at the girls and the little messenger boys, and cash girls who are ministering to us in the stores, and especially during the coming "holiday rush," as it is called. Try and put yourself in their place so that when you are asked to join the league after Christmas you can at least be ready to answer thoughtfully and intelligently whether you want to belong or not.

As we all know, (and many of us to our sorrow,) that college girls are continually- being criticized, either directly or vaguely, sometimes in fun and often in all serious- ness, it may be interesting to trace why it is so. One can hardly go anywhere without hearing, "Why you're a college girl, can't you do that!" — "that" in- cluding innumerable things, anything. in fact, from cooking a dinner to playing rag-time. When the college girl goes home the family expect wide, accurate and imme- diate information upon almost any subject; her friends expect her to be able to carry out a dozen practical projects with en- thusiasm and efficiency, and others stand ready to pass judgment upon her man- ners and general deportment. So much is expected of her that she feels as if she were in a "class by herself," and had a difficult standard to maintain, and, what is more, one that is not of her own choosing. A college education is a great opportunity, but it cannot, and ought not to be ex- pected to do everything. The other day two girls, unmistakably college girls, were coming out from Boston. Lots of people never worry about style, just buy FOWNES GLOVES and hit it right. DR. CHAS E. TAYLOR DEINTIST Taylor Block, Wellesley, Mass. Office flours, 9-5 Telephone Connection One boarded the train, dashed ahead of the other, and elbowed her way to the front of the car. Her friend had been crowded into the car behind, and presently the passengers in both carriages were edified to hear Xo. i shriek back to Xo. 2, (back through the entire length of one car to the next) "Here Maude, here's a seat!" One gentleman turned to another: "How can the college permit such things?" he said in disgust. The gentleman had a right to be dis- gusted but he ought not to have con- sidered the college responsible. The col- lege does not teach deportment, either for train, street or parlor — the individual is responsible for that, although, alas, the reprehensible conduct of one girl will re- flect discredit upon the whole college. The truth of the matter is that the college should not be held accountable for every deficiency of its thousand members, and neither should each girl feel it necessary to proclaim herself a fully developed and thoroughly educated woman at the end of her four years' course. Xot that we do this consciously, or realize that by a thou- sand little turns and tricks that we are continually making evident that we are "college girls," and therefore have a right to be exempt from many demands, and have a claim to peculiar privileges.

It is better to be oneself, as an individual than a "college girl." The girl who is modest, willing to listen to others and in- terested in their interests, who says by her attitude, if not by words — "College has but shown me how little I know and how much there is to learn;" the girl who realizes that her faults and virtues are as much, and even more, the result of her own character and home-training — such girl neither brings discredit to her college, nor finds herself overwhelmed by the expectations of the world.

On Saturday evening, November 2, the Class of 1910 held a Rally at the Barn. Doughnuts, cider and a general good time were the order of the evening. On Saturday evening, November 2, at T. Z. E. House, was held the first meeting of the Deutsche Verein. A long table was set in the center of the room and around it sat the guests of honor, Mrs. Miinsterberg and her two daughters and niece, the .Misses Miinsterberg, a few members of tne Faculty and a few fortunate students. The rest of the Association sat around the room, and everybody ate sausages. Miss Dorothy Pope, president of the organization, gave tne welcoming address, set- ting forth the ideals of the Verein, asking for co-operation — and urging everybody to pay their dues. Miss Frida Semler then toasted The Guests, .braulein Muller began her speech by saying that she would speak on a subject that lay very near to all of us, and one that might pursue some of us into our deepest dreams — the German bausage. Fraulein Muller showed what a great part it had played in the affairs of Germany, and how it permeates German proverbs. Mrs. Miinsterberg spoke on the hospitality of the Deutsche Verein and hoped that some day it might ha\ e a club house of its own. Then she toasted the "Club House." Fraulein Miilltr replied that we cannot have a club house until we have ten or twenty thousand dol- lars. Mrs. Miinsterberg then toasted "The Man who will give us the Twenty Thousand Dollars." The meeting closed with the singing of German songs. On Monday, November 4, from 2 to 5 P.M., at the Barn, oc- curred the 1909 Class Social. It was the usual meeting, greeting and eating. The first of the Artist Recitals, a song recital by Mr. David Bispham, was given in College Hall Chapel on Monday evening, November 4. The program was as follows: "The Wedding Song," ) "The Innkeeper's Daughter,"! n . T "The Deserted Mill," f Carl L ° 6We "Tom the Rhymer," J "Auf dem Meere," ] "Marie." j " Standchen," "Wilkommen!

Kurt Schindler "The Stuttering Lovers" Irish Folk Song For one encore Mr. Bispham sang the wonderful "Edward" of the Percy Reliques, which some of us remember so enthu- siastically from his last visit. After the recital was a great gathering in center and cheering and singing. On Friday evening, November 8, Miss Frida Semler and Miss Ruth Hanford entertained the Scribblers' Club at Agora House. Miss Agnes Rothery read. On Friday, November 8, from 5.30 to 7.30 P.M., the South- ern Club was entertained at the Zeta Alpha House by Misses Ella Mary Tilford, Elizabeth Woodson, Elizabeth Adamson, Mary F.

COLLEGE NEWS FREE PRESS. i. iGt I have not read a hundred and seventy Freshman letters deal- ing with the first weeks at Wellesley without some food for thought; and this thought seems to me to concern the whole college, the upperclassmen in especial. First among those mani- fold "first impressions" of Wellesley comes a strong and en- thusiastic sense of the cordial, kindly, democratic spirit of the place. Here one gladly recognizes the perfect justice of the judgment, and feels that never while she stays in Wellesley will the Freshman feel her first enthusiasm misplaced. But side by side with this comes another impression, the impression of a few older, more thoughtful girls, who question whether the whole-hearted Freshman enjoyment of fudge and Welsh rarebit and "dream sandwiches" is, after all the thing for which they have come to college. When, they ask, shall they find the hearty interest in new ideas which brought them here ? And here one stops to question. When will those girls, who have come to Wellesley for the real purpose for which colleges were founded, find that genuine zeal for new thoughts, that ardent discussion of ideas of every sort, for which they seek' Will they ever find it among the mass of upperclassmen who maintain that it is out of place to discuss "work" outside the class room? Is this tra- dition a worthy one for a college community to hand down to Freshmen? More marked, however, and more general, is an- other impression. There prevails among at least eighty-five Freshmen, and presumably among more than three hundred, a wholesome respect for the Student Government Association and its ideals. And here one must pause for serious thought. How long will this respect last, when at any hour of the day in College Hall, Freshmen may hear sudden outbursts of laughter and loud talking, when in the midst of a lecture, Seniors in cap and gown pass the open door with laughter that disturbs a Freshman English class? How long will this respect last, when as Sopho- mores, newly come to a Dormitory, they find no real regard for the quiet of studious girls during recitation periods, and not al- ways perfect regard during the evening quiet hours? Is it right that even a Freshman in the village should be forced to say, "The only quiet time is between seven-thirty and nine-thirty in the evening, and it is very hard to study at any other time." Can the work for six courses be satisfactorily done between seven-thirty and nine-thirty in the evening? I do not think so. How can this sentiment, aroused by the first meeting of the Student Government Association, be turned into a real, rea- sonable, controlling sense of personal responsibility in the new members of the college? In no way that I know save by the turning of sentiment into a vital sense of personal responsibility in the whole student body. The future of the college lies in the impressionable spirit of the Freshman class; that spirit is awake, eager to go forward upon a new way; — and it is the upperclass- men who will inevitably determine the direction it will take, for good or ill. Agnes F. Perkins. II. In three classes that I have been in this week the noise in the corridors has been so disturbing that it was necessary for some girl to step outside and give the familiar warning — sh-sh-sh. All of us know and feel what a good and grand thing our Student Government is, and all of us respect what it stands for here at Wellesley; and we are all most anxious not to give any- one the chance to criticize her in the slightest degree. Now it seems to me that such a disturbance is a serious matter, and I know that all the girls in the classes must have felt as I did, — most uncomfortable. There is no danger of a decreasing faith on our own part towards Student Government, for we all know the true and loyal spirit towards her; but might there not be in the case of the Faculty, who can only judge by what they see, and not by what they feel? Each year girls give up a great deal in serving Student Gov- ernment, and can't we all feel a little of their responsibility and help them, by keeping the halls perfectly quiet during recitation time? 1 910. III. The old saying is wise, "Children are to be seen, not heard." I am a child in this country and am seen everywhere I go. "Not to be heard" is quite a question here, since whether I speak or not I am heard. If the article in the Boston Herald two weeks ago Monday, i. e. October 21, has given any offence to my fellow students, or those who are interested in the college, I ask them to reconsider and to do me justice to believe that I have been misrepresented in the interview. I am a learner here, not an adviser, and should not presume to express myself with conviction on the subjects included in the article in question. F. Y. Tsao. IV. "Crushes."

It seems to be quite the proper thing for every Freshman to have a "crush" on an upperclassman, for several Sophomores have told me with due pride about their experiences last year, and seem heartily to pity those who are not following their example. ( The most peculiar part of it is that though a girl may even boast about her former "crushes," she is extremely sensitive to any remarks during her infatuated period. Psychologically I cannot account for this strange condition unless it is an inherited instinct from the ancient hero-worship. It seems almost a crime to contaminate the beauty and sim- plicity of friendship by such a farce, and I hope that the Class of 191 1 will have the moral courage to resist any such repugnant tendency.

A cablegram recently received announces the death at Madura. India, of Miss Bessie Browning Noyes, sister of Rev. Charles L. Noyes, pastor of the Winter Hill Congregational Church of Somerville. Miss Noyes was, with her sister, Miss Mary Noyes, in charge of a girls' high and normal school conducted by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. She had many friends in this city and vicinity, all of whom were in- terested in the great work which she was aiding and who will learn of her death with many regrets. A month ago Miss Noyes was stricken with fever, and it is presumed her death re- sulted from this attack. No details have as yet been received. Miss Noyes was the daughter of Rev. J. T. Noyes, who with his wife, was serving at the time of her birth as a missionary at Madura, and who were valued workers of many years' serv- ice. She was born July 20, i860, and graduated at Wellesley College, 1882. After leaving college she was for a year a teacher in the South, under the American Missionary Associa- tion. After that she went back to Madura and, with her sister took charge of the Madura Girls' Normal School. Miss Noyes had two furloughs, the last of which ended when she returned to her work a year ago.
